LJ-Cuts, and Domain Aliasing

LJ-Cuts, and Domain Aliasing

Short, concise description of the idea
LiveJournal ought to update all links - not just some - for aliased domains.

Full description of the idea
LiveJournal allows paid users to mirror their journals for a more professional look. For instance, my journal appears at My recent entries, archive, and friends pages show up at, as do the permanent links and comment pages.

However, LJ-cuts link not to my domain but to a link.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Although LiveJournal's main appeal is its communities of friends, in order to keep up with the competition, our journals should look as polished as possible.
  • Inconsistent links are amateurish.
  • Paid users deserve better.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Somebody will have to do some programming, but I suspect this is more an issue of finishing up the job. After all, the other links work properly.
  • Other LJ-specific tags will still need to link to LiveJournal and not to the user's domain.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • I am not an able programmer, so I cannot forsee the problems here. I hope implementation of this feature is as simple as the concept.
